    What does "Moderated Blog Entry" mean?

    Every time I post a blog entry on AD a little man with a crossed-out mouth appears on it. On hovering my mouse pointer over it it says "Moderated Blog Entry", even if I have not enabled moderating comments when I posted the entry.

    Does this mean a blog entry needs moderator approval before being visible on the site?

    Re: Possibly that a mod has to approve it, but not sure

    To be honest, since the last update (not done by us, Vbulletin service does it) a few things have changed- there are now new smilies none of us put up (and some old one disappeared) and this 'moderated' thing came up. I think we have to approve them now until one of us figures out how to change that.
    In the past few days we have noticed spam in the blogs that we didn't notice until we 'went' there, and I recommend for people to disable blog comments to avoid spam turning up in them- which we naturally take care of when we become aware of it.
    Idk if this is a 'default' thing that happens when they get updated- but as soon as we figure out what happened we will take care of this.
    I heard that now the blogs are not visible to others, but I haven't been able to verify if this is true, since my default is to see everything.

    Re: What does "Moderated Blog Entry" mean?

    The only blog entries I see since July are my own and those made by mods. So, I'm pretty sure I cannot see blogs written by others, as I've been asked to check out one and it's not there. Only those made by mods or those before the updates.

    That's something we need to look into- one poster complained about it but it seems that it's happening to pretty much everyone else.

    Re: What does "Moderated Blog Entry" mean?

    Ok the plot thickens. I took a look in the back end and found the following blog default settings:
    View blog and leave comments is 'on' as default.
    Members on ignore list may not view blog or leave comments.
    Other members may view blog and leave comments
    Guests may view blogs but not leave comments.

    So, I'm not sure what the deal with the moderated message means, will have to try to look at yours and see if I figure it out- but in theory the blogs should be open to members that are logged in, but not to guests- a guest can see them but not comment on them (to avoid spam), but all members have to be logged in to comment if each blog is set to accept comments.
    Please check on your own personal settings and make sure that your blog is set on 'visible to members' and I don't know why you can't see others, unless you're on their 'ignore' list- I don't think so, I'm not ignoring you so you should see mine (but not comment, I removed that option from mine.)

    Re: What does "Moderated Blog Entry" mean?

    Er... according to the blogs I can see, you have none. I see four pages of blog entries, and they are by Jake, LightBeam, CPW, Missingno., Beekeeper and heliac. The latest blog I see from another user is Beek's from July 4th. And that's it.

    Am I on your ignore list?

    Re: What does "Moderated Blog Entry" mean?

    My "Permissions & Privacy" says that "Other members may..." view my blog and leave comments. Even guests should be able to view it. Only the boxes for ignored ones have been unchecked by default. (So it is the same defaults as you described, I haven't changed these.) But if these are the defaults they aren't working.

    Re: What does "Moderated Blog Entry" mean?

    PS - my blog statistics:

    1 visitor on Sep 3rd (when I PMd Beek if she can see my blog) and 1 today (that would be you).

    Not exactly popular.

    Of course I blame the technology, not the content!

    Well if no one can see your blog then I suppose that's why you don't have visitors. I need to take this up with Robert and/ or the vBulletin gee...technicians, because this is beyond my abilities.

    Announcement to all Bloggers

    In working with the recent blog debacle, I found that for some reason if I go through all moderated blog posts and approve them, they seem to appear visibly.
    I have now approve all blog posts by everyone I could (there were about 16)- so in theory all your blogs should be back, unless someone is in your 'ignore' list. Then all bets are off.

    If after this you still can't see your blogs from a member please tell me which post isn't there and I'll take a look- but it appears that for some reason the blogs are set to 'moderate', which means a mod or admin has to approve them. I don't mind doing this (because it keeps spam away) if I know I have to, I'll make it part of my daily 'chores' here.

    BTW, I could not find anywhere where it's set that way, I just found out experimentally that if I select your blog and approve it it appears to come back.
